Date: 10th January 2021

Name of show: A Midlife Less Ordinary

Episode title and number: Se1Ep5 – Interview With A Villain

Brief summary of show:

After last week’s episode all about beards and their history with tips from Trev on how to grow a stonker of a beard, we shift the focus onto what some guys with suitable beards get up to in the various beard clubs around the world.

The title “Interview With A Villain” relates to the world’s biggest beard club “The Bearded Villains” of which Trev is a member and proud co-captain. Here Trev busts some of the myths surrounding beard clubs and all the good work they do for charity. Trev touches on the bond and brotherhood that the members feel for each other and the social life they enjoy whilst being members. 

So if you took Trev’s advice in the last episode and have started on your journey to a showcase beard, let Trev inform you on how to expand your social life and join a beard club.

Bullet points of key topics & time stamps:

·       Trev: 3:53 

Again, all of a sudden, in the last four or five years, beards have become very fashionable. And then you've got TV shows on Sons of Anarchy that have really kind of made that kind of lifestyle. Kind of very household people, you know, for something that was quite underground. It does kind of is a lot more invoke now.


·       Trevor Deeley: 23:40 

We have a quite a few guys that have been in the services that have joined up. And as I as I said before, earlier on in this conversation, there's a lot of different people in different walks of life. There's policeman, there's army guys, there's security guys, every walk of life ever, which is good, because it gives, you know, because obviously, we raised money that has to be looked after.


·       Trevor Deeley: 25:40 

·       age doesn't really come into it. per se, I'm really good friends with all the guys and yeah, I'm not even looked at. And again, you get that kind of older uncle figure.
